Soaring, because of me staring the car up  to adjust it I must have fouled the plugs I have found that the pertronix is okay but I will need to change the plugs and then I will see what happens.    Also  do you know of anyone that has a good c4 for sale?

Putting in a pertronix has absolutely nothing to do with fouling the plugs.  Take out #1 and show me a picture of it.  No, I don't know of anyone who has a C4 for sale.  Check with the for sale on here, then check with Craigslist and Ebay.

I have the Pertronix Ignitor II with the Pertronix Coil and have not had any problems to speak of.  I used to have trouble starting and after I put this in, no more problems.

I only went with the II because it was the later model and I had a coupon to get 20% off my total purchase of $100+.  I think the II cost $99 and the Coil cost $39 so I basically got the II for the same price as the I.  My main goal was just to convert to electronic.

I've wondered what the real performance difference is between the I and II as well as how it compares to MSD or other electronic ignition systems.  I don't do any racing, just drive around town with my '68 302 2v.

I don't see how it is possible to perform any better than the Petronix original. I can hardly hear the starter engage before my old 289 roars to life.  I have been extremely pleased with it for about 2 years now.  It certainly beats the hell out of the points system.  And, I only paid $65 for mine because I could use my original coil.  So, the original model is about 1/2 the price of the II with a new flamethrower coil.

Soaring, Did you hook up your pertronix by by-passing the pink resister wire?  I didn't and it works just fine.  Some say it won't work that way.  Just wondering ...
